Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain: Romantic: Review/Swatch

The words “Just Bitten”, “Kissable” and “Romantic” go so well together! Revlon’s Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Romantic is one such product that can make your lips look all three and stand by its name!!!
Standing tall and proud! 😉

What Revlon claims: 
It’s a pampering balm fused with a lightweight lipstain in an adorable chubby crayon. Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain gives softer, smoother lips with a perfect flush of color that lasts hour after hour.
Price: 600 INR for 2.7g
The Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stains come in the form of a lip crayon in a retractable form and the packaging is such that it literally screams the color of the product inside!!

As many of you know, I have this slight obsession for anything which is orange so a red with strong orange undertones was definitely a yes for me! Romantic, a kind of tomato red with deep orange undertones was a winner with respect to the color itself.

The balm stain as such is pretty sheer but can be built upon to give a coverage that is neither sheer nor opaque. So these make for great day as well as night wear. For those of you who have the red lipstick phobia, you can start out with this one! Foolproof.

When it is applied on the lips, it glides on like a lip balm but after a while it kind of dries down to a stain which was amazing. If you have extremely dry lips, don’t get fooled by the balm part of it, it is advisable to prep your lips like you would do before applying a matte lipstick. And did I mention the amazingly strong minty fragrance that comes with this balm stain? Love it!!

The color stayed on my lips as a stain for nearly 4 and half hours and didn’t budge even when I was busy feeding my hungry stomach. 😛 But after that 4 hours of wear, it started fading unevenly but that unevenness wasn’t visible till closely observed. It looked red initially but it seemed orangish as a lip stain.

L: swiped once; R: swiped several times
L: immediately after application; R: after 4 hours
Final Word: The Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Romantic is one of my favourite lip color and in terms of the formulation, Revlon has nailed this one! I’m definitely investing in more colors!!
